Playing careerEdit

His career spanned from 1988 until 2001. He is one of only a few cricketers in modern times to score a century and take ten wickets in the same county championship match (v Essex 1996).

Having been told he would be playing for England against Pakistan at the Oval in 1992 he broke a bone in his foot and was not officially selected. He was the leading wicket taker in 1994 with many cricket writers believing he should have gone to Australia for the 1994/95 Ashes tour. His best all round season came in 1996 and again many cricket writers picked him on the winter tour to the West Indies.

Umpiring careerEdit

In 2007, he was selected in the reserve list as a first class umpire for the season of 2008 by ECB.[2] In 2008, he was promoted to the first class umpire's list.[3] He stood as an umpire in the 2014–16 ICC Women's Championship.[4] He was selected as one of the two foreign umpires in the 2019–20 Bangladesh Premier League.[5]
